The English Cricket Association For The Deaf (ECAD) are offering an open invitation for new players to join them at any level. No matter what your cricketing ability is, Deaf Cricket is open to anyone with a hearing loss and has a great mix of players across England & Wales.
The Huddersfield Cricket League is acutely familiar with cricketers that have hearing impairments. Pace bowler Adnan Ghani, a league and cup winner with Hoylandswaine, (formerly of Denby and Pakistan Deaf) has been one of the top performers with the ball in the Premiership. Darrell Sykes continues to be an inspiring model of consistency for top flight side Moorlands, playing at the highest levels. The former Almondbury Wesleyans and Hall Bower player has hit the high notes before having been a former international Deaf cricketer for England and has also excelled in other sports having represented the national deaf team at football.
As long as you wear a hearing aid or are medically deaf then you can play as far as ECAD are concerned. It might be a mild or severe hearing loss, you might be an oral communicator or use British Sign Language. All are welcome. ECAD are always looking out for new players and they can offer different and interesting cricket opportunities.
